Milky white berried red Rilli shrimp


Recommended Posts

Does my shrimp have milky white disease? She is berried and looks a bit white.

Hi @Lucy,

It is difficult to see in that photo.

Can you try getting a side macro shot of the shrimp?

That is one heavily berried shrimp which looks fine/normal to me. Lots of shrimplets to look forward too!

Looks fine to me too.

She is heavily berried and that means you will have babies soon.

Feed her well. More protein will be good. If you have not tried frozen blood worms, that is the what you should feed when the females are berried. Really should have started feeding more protein when you see a saddle. But better later than never.

Oh wow, thank you. I had no idea about the bloodworms!

      Really pleased to hear that your yellow shrimp tank is sorted now and you didn't even have to buy any new shrimps to repopulate, bonus! I hope the treatment of the CRS goes well, Ihaen't used any of those reatments so can't advise on those but would go with the info on the thread as that would be updated with the latest information/advice!  Simon

      I suspect the coral and egg shells have caused the GH to increase so I would just take those out and do a 50% slow water change! You will need to do water changes anyway whilst you're trying to re-cycle the tank, the treatments you used may have killed some of the beneficial bacteria, or it could just have been the chicken as you state? If the neocaridina were doing fine without the KH then it would be better to return to that set up, at least until you get it back to normal and stable. The important thing is not to make and big/sudden changes to the water parameters, the CRS will be more delicate than the neocaridina, but all shrimp are fragile creatures! Simon

      Great to hear that you are sorted! I wouldn't have thought Cordoras would eat copepods but as long as it is working stick with it? Simon

      Hi everyone. I've been keeping caridinas and neocaridinas in the same tank for about 2 months now. My neocaridinas were doing very well. Everyone was molting at their own pace and was breeding like crazy. Then I did a stupid thing of leaving raw chicken bits. While my shrimps ate the chicken, 2-3 of them died after that. And now my tank is totally haywire. I've tried doing water changes, tried vacuuming the substrate. My tank parameters are also REALLY REALLY bad.  Nitrates 40 Nitrite 1 Gh >7 Kh 0 PH 6.8 CL 0 CO2 <15 My ammonia is <0.02ppm My tank contents are aragonite sand, black active substrate(in a glass container), coral chips, coral stones, cholla wood, fissiden moss, duckweed, Indian almond leaf, java fern, a money plant, marimo moss ball.  What can I do to make the nitrates and nitrites go away? And is my kh and gh making any sense? I tried adding coral stone, egg shells to increase my kh but it's not working.

      Hi Simon, updates on the planaria and copepods. I tried using planaria trap and really screwed up the tank as I put raw chicken in the trap and when it wasn't trapping any planaria I took out the trap and left the chicken bits inside. I think they decomposed and caused a lot of ammonia as a few of my shrimps died(2-3). Then I used the benibachi planaria zero in the tank (did 2 water changes focusing on cleaning the substrate) and separated my snails and after two doses I don't see any more planarias. I also went to get 3 pygmy corydoras. That really made the copepods dissappear slowly but surely. Thank you so much for your help and advice!
